The FIT Show will mark the official launch of Agila – the new brand from Rehau for its range of specialist door systems which, the company says, will give fabricators and installers ‘a solution for every possible door application’. There are initially five products in the Agila range and these will all be on display on stand 346. Alongside a composite door, there will be a Passivhaus door for applications where energy performance is the key criteria, a fire door for areas where high level of protection is required and both multi-fold and sliding doors to give a wider choice to consumers who want to open up their home to the garden. Rehau says Agila doors will come with guarantees of quality, finish and performance and, for existing customers, will fill in potential gaps in their ranges which mean they can now offer a complete installation in Rehau. According to Rehau, probably the most talked about product on the 56 T H E F I T S H O W P R E V I E W Meet 14,000 customers “Anyone who wants to sell to more fabricators, installers or trade counters should see us first on stand 381, hall 3,” said Neil Parsonson, database manager of Windowbase. “We have over 14,000 verified records covering the window market, and we’re bringing them all to the FIT Show – where you can try our online database for free!” “Most companies waste time and effort chasing ‘leads’ which turn out to be ‘duds’. If you’re trying to call, mail or email companies that have gone away, ceased trading or changed ownership it’s simply money down the drain. Accurate and up-to-date information is invaluable.” Windowbase says it is the UK’s only prospect data supplier that is 100% dedicated to the window market and the only one to have been researching the industry continuously for over 25 years. Its in-house interviewers reportedly make thousands of calls a year to validate contact details, products and system information to ensure the data it provides is as accurate and current as it’s possible to be. Windowbase provides names, addresses, phone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses along with details of company size, products and systems used and activities. “The information can easily be tailored to requirements,” explained Neil. “So if you only want to target Synseal installers in the Midlands, or Veka www.ggpmag.com April 2016 Rehau unveils Agila specialist door range fabricators in the North, we can provide that information and that’s all you pay for. Our data is great for direct marketing by email, post, fax or phone and you can even add information to our records that no one else can see.” Neil added: “Come and see us on Stand 381, and find out for yourself how easy it is to get started and access our data securely online.” www.windowbase.info stand will be the new Agila sliding door which is said to offer contemporary slim sight lines to let more light in, and competes head on with aluminium with larger maximum sizes and multi-pane configurations. Like all of the Agila range, the sliding door is designed to meet the requirements of fabricators, installers and consumers. It is reportedly fast and easy to manufacture and install with ‘clever’ innovations such as a clip-in, universal straight cut infill strip, pre-routed hardware options and pre-inserted gasket and brush pile. It also comes in a choice of eight standard foil options including grey, black/brown and cream to appeal to homeowners and provide a perfect match with Rehau’s window range. Before its official launch in the summer, final stages of development for the door will include a designated PAS24 compliant hardware solution with 12 locking points and a Part M compliant low threshold and handle option. Along with its affordability, these, Rehau says, will make it a great tool for selling into the new build sector. For customers who want a multifold option as well, the Agila multifold will also be on display for the first time with a brand new aluminium clad option to open up a whole range of new design opportunities for customers. Rehau’s marketing and technical director, Gareth Jones, said: “We have invested in a range which allows fabricators to target exciting new market opportunities. In fact, we have already got manufacturers in place for all five of the doors we are showing at FIT.” www.rehau.com Neil Parsonson
